Mary Mapes was born in New York to a prominent family, and educated at home with her siblings by tutors and her father. She married lawyer William Dodge in 1851; he died in 1858. She and her two sons moved in with her family, and her father involved her with two periodicals he owned, both as editor and writer, and her writing became so popular she began publishing stories in other journals. She continued to write stories, and was the founding editor of the famous children's magazine, St. Nicholas, which has had a long and profound effect on children's literature; she guided the periodical from 1873 through 1905. Mary Mapes Dodge is probably best-known today for her story Hans Brinker, or, The Silver Skates.
